GLOBE Green-Up/Green-Down Protocol – Budburst Made Easy!

Tip of the Week: GLOBE students – as part of your efforts to explore the Biosphere (one of the four Earth spheres The GLOBE Program covers), you can dive into the Green-Up/Green-Down Protocol.

The Green-Down uses a GLOBE Plant Color Guide to help you monitor the change in color of selected leaves of trees, shrubs, and/or grasses. The Green-Up Protocol will help you monitor the budburst and growth of leaves of selected trees, shrubs, and/or grasses. 

As a GLOBE student, you can also follow the step-by-step instructions provided within the Green-Up and Green-Down Field Guides.
